Day 5: NY Fashion Week
Lady Gaga and Madonna
Sporting pink curls and a mask reminiscent of one of her MTV VMA ensembles, Lady Gaga chatted backstage at the Marc Jacobs show with the even more famously controversial dresser, Madonna (in Caroline Seikaly). The pair-along with Madonna's boyfriend, Brazilian model Jesus Luz-then headed to Jacobs's after party at Hiro Ballroom, where Gaga performed in a red lace unitard and theatrical makeup, natch.

Janet Jackson and Marc Jacobs
While still in New York after her powerful performance at the MTV VMAs, Janet Jackson celebrated with Marc Jacobs at his after-party hosted by Belvedere Vodka and V magazine. Other stars to stop by Hiro and fete the designer included Lindsay Lohan, Ciara and Rachel Zoe.
Rachel Zoe and Milla Jovovich
Star stylist Rachel Zoe and Milla Jovovich, the face of Donna Karan's Cashmere Mist ad campaign, watched as Donna Karan presented her Spring 2010 Collection at Stephen Weiss's airy West Village studio. "I think Donna is so inventive, especially in today's economy," said Jovovich, who wore a striped dress from Karan's resort collection. "When you buy a Donna Karan dress you're almost getting three dresses in one depending on how you wear it because they're flowy and you can tie them in so many ways."
Rachel Bilson and Nicky Hilton
The New York Public Library was a feeding ground for paparazzi as Rachel Bilson, Nicky Hilton and Kelly Rowland packed the front row of Jill Stuart's winding runway show. Kim Kardashian also took a front-row seat, but not before speaking to Stuart and fulfilling her reporting duties backstage for her new role as OK! magazine's Contributing Beauty Editor. "It's been amazing! I mean it's every girl's dream to come and ask the makeup artists and hairstylists what their tricks and secrets are."
Gabrielle Union, Kim Kardashian and Ciara
After a quick outfit change from the Jill Stuart show, Kim Kardashian-whose plan is to "be Old-Hollywood glam throughout Fashion Week"-rushed over to catch the Tracy Reese show alongside Gabrielle Union and Ciara. "I love this line because Tracy designs for real women who want to look fly," said Union. "She designs for women that want to look like women; she designs for women who eat every now and again."
Emmy Rossum and Carolina Herrera
Always-elegant designer Carolina Herrera posed backstage at her Spring 2010 fashion show with actress and fan, Emmy Rossum. "I am really looking forward to seeing the gowns," said Rossum (in a Carolina Herrera gold tweed dress). "I just love her aesthetic and was lucky enough to wear one of her designs to the MET ball!"
Sporting a tapestry dress by Mara Hoffman and colorful accessories, singer and trendsetter Katy Perry joined in on the Fashion Week festivities by doing some shopping near Bryant Park. She hit the Lia Sophia suite in the Alice + Olivia boutique where she picked up over $7,000 worth of jewels, including gifts for her mom, and the Victoria's Secret Fashion Week Suite.
Singer-designer Avril Lavigne posed with models wearing her latest punk-inspired Abbey Dawn by Avril Lavigne collection after the runway show at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Front-row guest stars included Nicky Hilton and designer Tommy Hilfiger.
